Re: Coronavirus: when can we start traveling again?

It seems difficult to estimate, when travel will be again possible without heavy restrictions. If you have a lot of time, you might be doing the 2 weeks quarantine in certain (safe) countries (e.g. China) and then be fine until there might be a new wave of infections in that country. But at the mome...

Re: Pamir Highway by camper

In 2013 we saw a Norwegian ambulance on the Pamir highway, entering from Kyrgyzstan, but they had to turn around, because the ambulance was too heavy and they did not make it over Akbaital (reduced power with the height), some days later they doubled us, apperently they made it somehow over Akbaital.

Re: how can we buy side car Ural in Dushanbe

Some years ago we met Alick with an Ural on his way through the stans (2013). You most probably found his story in advrider forum "Uralistan". He bought a sidecar Ural in Bishkek and took of the sidecar, then went on until Kabul. So it should be doable, but if you want two of them, it coul...

Re: Shopping - oats/muesli

In the past we had no problems finding oats in Khorog. Ask for "Gerkules" (you can also try it in other villages). In China we sometimes had difficult times finding oats. Muesli or oats are also our preferred breakfast.

Re: Help with shipping from dushnabe

We've only sent back baggage from Kirgyzstan and Uzbekistan with the normal post, but nothing of the dimension of a bicycle. Sending back from Uzbekistan was a lot cheaper and everything arrived (in relatively short time, allthough sent via surface mail).
